Board of Trustees

Our Board of Trustees was established early on with supporters of the dream that became the reality of Mt. Irenaeus. They helped build our founding documents and fundamentals, and used those living documents to guide the Mountain forward while not losing our identity and mission of “making all things new!”

Today, board members are invited, mentored and guided into our “Gospel Manner of Life and Ministry,” while being supported on their own spiritual path. There are at least three regular meetings throughout each year, along with many opportunities to gather together as friends and co-ministers for the Mountain.
